Topics Polemics Politics UK

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. Lower speed limits. Punishing green targets. In Britain today, drivers’ lives are being made a misery by a host of eco-initiatives explicitly aimed at reducing car use. And yet, take issue with the war on motorists and you’ll be told that the war on motorists is a myth. You might even be smeared as a conspiracy theorist, by the very same environmentalists who pushed for these policies in the first place. Here, Tom Slater takes apart the gaslighting of the green elites to show that the war on cars is very real – and that ordinary Brits are dead right to be pushing back.
